Housed in a prerevolutionary building and open since 1826, Union Oyster House is a little touristy but it makes sense why: It’s iconic Boston, and the clam chowder is out of this world. Go at least once—it’s located on the Freedom Trail so you can stop in along your walk. Bonus: It’s also steps from the famous New England Aquarium (which is right on the water), where littles can check out a multistory tank, a gorgeous penguin sanctuary, and get up close and personal with seals.
